Tangerine & Rhinestone Bonwit Teller Evening Purse


Here is a beautiful Bonwit Taylor evening purse in great condition. Bonwit Taylor was a luxury retail department store founded in 1895 at Sixth Ave and 18th in New York City. It was a rival of Saks. In fact, Andy Warhol was a window dresser there at one time, but I digress. This tangerine purse is covered in rhinestones both back and front and not one is missing. It has a gold and rhinestone clip clasp and a gold spiral chain (which needs to be polished to look its best). The inside has a pocket and it has some dark staining but nothing gross or overly dirty.

It is 8 x 5.5". The tag from the antique store it came from to the collector I got it from has $375., and it is worth every penny of that. I offer free domestic (USA) shipping on this item.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my refund for a damaged product.

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
